...I think that's about it.

Almost half ($478) of that was spent on Kickstarter alone. Hm. I might have a problem.



TOR 2E kickstarter$170
Tiny Dungeons$17.99
Tiny Frontiers$23.99
Level Up kickstarter$90
Age of Rebellion Core Rules$49
Ironsworn Hard Copy$29
Ironsworn Delve$31

Not bad. That's downright restrained, for me.

Were they any good?
No idea. They just finished the Edible Gummies Kickstarter on October 27th, so they are still working on fulfilment. But I'll never know unless I order more!

See, the folks who are doing the Edible Gummy Minis had partnered with GameToGrow.org and the Children's Miracle Network, to donate packets of these gummy candies and copies of the Critical Core game (another Kickstarter that I backed) to kid gamers in hospitals. So I pledged, and then I chose to donate all of my pledge rewards to the kids.


Do I count? I spent $166,784.22 on games this year. But I own a comic and game store and sold most of it! (I spent $387,463.64 on comics, so my store is only 1/3 games and 2/3 comics). I guess I could figure out how much I spent on what I use myself...


I'm going to keep track of how much I spend in 2022 on games. I must have spent more than $2,000 in 2021. I spent more than $800 alone on Imperial Knights.


Fortunately my big spending was all in the days of the d20 boom. I have shelves and shelves of books. Nowadays I only play D&D 3.5 and variants, so there's not much to buy.

On the other hand, a few years ago I discovered boardgames and spent about 3000 euros in one year (and generally play the same three games over and over again).

I haven't bought any books since XGtE and I have enough props already. I probably spent something for printing and laminating more of own game cards but it's peanuts


I spend about $60 to $70 per month. $65 x 12 = $780. I'll say $1000 for 2021 since I know a went a bit over $70 a few times. Which is half what I used to spend. I expect to spend less in 2022. Going for $55-$60 per month.


I built two armies myself this year. This thread scares me.
The employees at the game store know my name. Granted, they have a discount program and for a while they always asked my name when I bought something. But even with a mask on they know me by name. I'm spending a lot of money there is what I'm saying.

This is a great exercise. I think I'm forgetting an Itch purchase or bundle or two, but my 2021 spending would be a lot higher if I wasn't such a PDF-buying cheapskate:
